Since lockdown ended and more shops opened up I didn't feel the need to go shopping for the sake of it and have still only been going to the supermarket for food shopping. But, last Thursday I had Oliver because the schools were off for voting and as I was going food shopping anyway I suggested we have a mooch around the charity shops in the town. Oliver loves looking at the books on offer, he is an avid reader and is in the advanced readers at school, he comes out everyday with a book tucked under his arm and when I pick him up we have conversations about what book he is reading and what he is going to read next on the walk back home. I'm glad he is interested in books, so many boys don't like reading so I'm happy he has inherited both his mums and my love of books.
Usually I find it's slim pickings on the books but I was very lucky in the first shop we went in and bought three for 99p
